TABYT  =  BATTY,  NMSIT  =  MINTS,  GLHAEG  =  HAGGLE,  UNAALN  =  ANNUAL   —   Giving us:  ATTMNTHAEANU

Clue/Question:  When Mr. and Mrs. Albacore had a baby, they played this.

Answer:  NAME THAT TUNA

(You can hear the moans and groans for MILES and MILES on this one!  But, to my way of thinking, if you’re NOT fond of puns; why the Hell do you do the Jumble in the first place?  I was reluctant to go with “mints”, because it appeared to be a plural noun.  But, then I realized that MINT is also a verb, so it’s all good, folks!  “Batty” and “haggle” were pretty simple, but “annual” might have thrown a few of you, for a while, because it starts with a vowel.  There was no giveaway with the answer letters, today.  And, that’s always – as Martha Stewart would say – a good thing!  Cute, nonsensical cartoon.  I suppose today’s Jumble could have been difficult, for those not familiar with either; the StarKist Tuna mascot, Charlie The Tuna, or the old game show Name That Tune.  But, I’m sure sure all the Boomers – and older – got it, with no problem whatsoever.  I sure hope today’s was a Dolphin Safe Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PSI rock at Name That Tune, folks!  Just as I rock at Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!

PPS.  The word “Hell” generates a lot of funky, scary, Medieval artwork in the Zemanta gallery.  Too many people have very sick imaginations!

    All 3 of those names are of the oldest boys in the Weasley family in Harry Potter. (Technically, George has a twin, Fred, though). I grew up with the books (read the first when I was 11), and I was the same age (almost exactly) as Harry was as the books came out.

    Why is the crab so, well, crabby-looking?

    I enjoy Spongebob’s pineapple (under the sea) in the background.

    Haaaa! Angie, I noticed the crab and pineapple, too! This was a real groaner, but I loved it!

    Good morning. I thought I’d just pop in to say hi. I see by the last few posts that everyone seems pretty happy with our work lately. Nice! It really was luck that we happened to use Mick Jagger on his birthday a couple of days ago. As you’ve noticed we are trying to do more and more “This Day In History”-type Jumbles where we tie the Jumbles to specific events/dates but that Mick Jagger Jumble was just luck. We had a 1 in 365 shot and got lucky.
